At Sutter Health, providing quality care is our top priority. We believe it’s your right to know what we’re doing to continually improve the care we provide and how we measure up against national quality benchmarks. We also believe that as an informed patient, you will be able to take a more active part in your care.
Because we treat so many patients throughout Northern California, experts within Sutter Health are able to study the effectiveness of our care, and share what works best with doctors across our network. Drawing from our own best practices and scientific proof of the most effective treatments, we're finding better ways of caring for patients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
